Hungry!

I am becoming nocturnal! Luckily, days are long, so at least I get some sunlight. I am now doing some work and waiting for food to be delivered. I ordered enough to keep me happy for a few days. :)

A few days ago I picked up my first hitchhiker up in the Berkeley hills. I was driving with my sister after dropping Lilli off, and a woman was on the side of the road — WAY up in the hills — with a sign that said, “BART.” She was bundled up for warmth and was carrying a few shopping bags. I don’t know why I did it, but I’m glad I did. She said that someone had stopped for her, but had driven away when she approached. If she had missed the last train, I wonder where she would have slept!

update I just ate a bad pear. yuck. I had a dream this morning that the house next door had been transformed into a towering structure looking directly into my bathroom (giving me a view into their bedroom, which conveniently had mirrors placed such that the bed was visible. heh… :) the house three lots away can see into my bathroom. they were doing construction, and one day I looked out of my window only to see someone’s bedroom window). My tub fixtures had also somehow sprung a leak, but the plumber had shown up to fix it before I was even awake. The rest of the dream involved poorly installed screens (i didn’t know who installed them — maybe the plumber?) flapping around in the wind (they were installed to prevent people from seeing into my house, of course). The screens were installed around the perimeter of my non-existent backyard, at ground level along a wooden fence. Who knows why. Dreams are strange. This entry is stupid.

update 2 I saw BulletProof Monk last night. It was horrible. The highlight was hitting a guy in the back of the head with a lemon drop because he was snoring loudly enough to disrupt the entire theater. Actually, it wasn’t a lemon drop. It was a small Korean vitamin candy thing. I think that’s the first time I’ve thrown something at someone in a movie theater since high school. :) People laughed more at his snoring than they did at the movie.

    1) I’m not much for dream analysis, but that smacks of fear of letting people see the “real you”. Or something.

    2) Did hitting the guy with the candy make him stop snoring? I can’t stand movie theater noise. I’m very sensitive to people talking, whispering, or eating loudly. :(

    Hey, adam. yeah — he stopped snoring immediately and took a drink of water from his water bottle. :)

    fear of letting people see the “real” me, huh? that’s possible. although, in person I’m pretty open. it’s just online that I try not to say anything about how I feel.

    or maybe it’s just that every time I take a shower I can look into my neighbor’s bedroom — and vice versa. :) i’ve been planning on “fixing” the problem, but i guess i’ve been lazy.

    bulletproof monk looks pretty bland. have you seen bend it like beckham yet? it’ll make you laugh :)

  • syndroes

    Is your neighbor hot echeng? I dream of stuff like that :) I was talking today about making a bathroom out of snap-glass and then surprising unsuspecting passers-by :)

  • norm

    I remember thinking that when I used your shower last time I was up there… It’s kinda wierd to look around at the neighbors whilst showering.
    (And throwing something at someone in a theater drew a laugh from teri… so, at least your journey was worth something!)

  • echeng

    entertaining teri is always fun. i like her sense of humor. :)

  • norm

    Yup. Pretty much if someone gets hurt, she first checks to make sure they are not going to die, then laughs at them.

    so bulletproof was a bust… and it sounds like a complete waste of time. i think chow and jet li should go back to HK since their skills do not “translate” well in hollywood. or i should say that hollywood fails to capitalize on their talents.

    the one time i went to a movie theater here in Tianjin, China (to see “Hero”), ppl not only received calls on their cells (and babbled away loudly), but they blatantly dialed out during the movie (and babbled away loudly). Argh!
